Changing Perceptions

Changing Perceptions: Inspiring Responsible Entrepreneurship

Our Changing Perceptions programme aims to inspire responsible entrepreneurship through collaboration and co-creation with engaged and respected partners across the Edinburgh Napier community.

We believe that by leading groups through a problem-solving framework, we can incubate their ideas and projects to the point where they can have a commercial or social impact. Hopefully both.

Our interactive workshop series

Our interactive workshops are open to students, staff and network partners who aspire to shape, share and develop ideas that have a positive impact on society, the economy, and communities. We want to encourage curiosity, raise the level of debate, and challenge students and staff to take action.


We take a collaborative approach to enable team-based problem solving. follow a design thinking approach and enable team-based problem solving. Our participants are given tools that foster active listening, ideation, innovation, and co-creation.ย 


Diversity and inclusion are important elements of the equation. Broader empathy and understanding help us create better, workable solutions.
